Too Cool For School!
Interesting "race" movie talking about how much "black power" stuff the black kids should swallow before giving up something they've worked hard for. A high school track star has everything going for him, but when a fellow black student starts getting into his ear about how they're all the white man's slave, he starts having second thoughts about winning one for the team. Not a bad film, except the students (especially the black guys) look way too old to be in High School.
